First # 6 almost all countries of the world have different state and civil flag. Much rarer are examples where a design is used for all applications. For example, Montenegro has a unique design for military and civil, and the national flag for use on land, at sea and in the air, and the flag is called the national flag at vexillologic rules.
Next # 10 manuscript Miroslav’s gospel is a cultural monument of Zeta not Serbia. If you are not known to Vuk’s language in Serbia is not used the letter “Đ” and “Ć”, they imbued the letter, which is used in Zeta centuries earlier. “Ć” is incurred when inverting the letters “Č” and setting the horizontal dijakrite over tails up. Also, the letter “Đ” is our tumbling letters ‘”DŽ” and setting the horizontal dijakrite over tails up.
Next # 12 Karađorđević from the Albanian tribe Kelmendi.
# 14 White angel painted by the Greek painter, but it is true that it is in the Serbian church.
# 17 Ćelekula was not made by the head of the rebels in the First Serbian Uprising. The first Serbian uprising was not against the Ottoman rule, but rebel against the local Muslims who wanted to become independent of the central authorities in Constantinople .
# 19 Tesla was a Serb just because his father was an Orthodox priest. Otherwise Tesla from Montenegro the tribe Banjani. Tesla is to the question his nationality when entering the United States, said the Austrian, while in America claimed that an American. With Serbia and the Serbs, and Croats, had nothing to do.June 27, 2015 at 4:15 pm #428346
American view of nationality is different than our’s. To them it equals citizenship, so Tesla, an Austrian citizen was Austrian in their view. Have you ever heard that some famous man, who lived in USA was referred to as something different than American? No, they are always American of some heritage.
In those times Montenegrins considered themselves Serbs, in fact everyone speaking Serbo-Croatian and Macedonian and being Orthodox Christian was considered a Serb. Montenegrin was just geographical term. Those are facts, I’m not trying to provoke some conflict on national or ethnic level.
Ćelekula was built out of skulls of Serbian rebels. After the battle of Čegar, the Turkish Grand Vizier of Niš, Hurshid Pasha, ordered that the heads of Sinđelić and his men be skinned, stuffed and sent to the Ottoman Sultan Mahmud II. The skulls were then returned to Niš, where the Turks built Skull Tower as a warning to future generations intending to revolt against the Ottoman Empire.
Mileševa was built by Serbian king Stefan Vladislav I, nobles in medieval Europe often hired foreign artists. White Angel being painted by a Greek is irrelevant fact, it’s like saying that Burj Khalifa isn’t symbol of Dubai because Americans created it.
Zeta was ruled by Serbia royalty, Miroslav who ordered the gospel was brother of Serbian ruler. Montenegrins and Serbs are one nation, at least they were back then.
I don’t know much about Karađorđevićs, but they got their Surname after Karađorđe, leader of the First Serbian Upraising, he himself was Petrović. Are you telling me that Petrovićs are Albanians?June 27, 2015 at 9:19 pm #428354
There are a lot of better facts you could have put.June 29, 2015 at 12:43 am #428360
@Dušan old friend, capturing the nation’s actually everywhere in the world equally, that we do not know what the nation is our problem.Tesla considered himself Austria’s because the protocol existed columns and citizenship and nationality and hi was told that the Austrian. Of course we are all citizens of the United States nationality and Americans know very well that their ethnic origin.
At that time, as well as everyone else, Montenegrins themselves are not considered Serbs. If anyone asked them, they made it clear that they were ethnic Montenegrins and Serbs by faith or Orthodox.Equating the church allegiance to ethnicity is a result of centuries of domination of alien (Ottoman) government. The Turks for their system millet (nation) shared by all Christians belonging to the church. So all Orthodox Christians who came under the spiritual authority of Constantinople were the Greeks, all of which fall under the spiritual authority of the Ohrid Patriarchate were Macedonians, under the Pec Patriarchate were Serbs. Montenegro was under the rule of the Patriarchate of Pec, and for Turks Montenegrins were not Serbs. Of course it was later the Serbian national elite, when he constructed the Serbian nation, handsome advantage of the Turkish millet system, in order to spread its influence to all Orthodox Christians. Do Montenegrins are Serbs, for their persistent refusal to make war against the Turks, considered less heroes and certainly would not consider themselves Serbs. These are all later inventions of the 19th century.
Is Čelekulu made Constantinople, or local Pasha?
Of course it is a white angel monument Serbia, and therefore of Serbs.
And what does it matter who is ruled Who? Does this mean that, for example, the Russians have become Germans because their emperors were Germans? Or Bulgarians, or the Greeks, or the Romanians? Are the Serbs themselves became the Turks because they ruled the Turkish empire half a millennium? Why would Zećani become Serbs, if they are ruled by a Serb? And it is known that the nobility usually had anything to do with the people he ruled, because their mother’s generation were foreigners, and usually not even speak the language they spoke nation which governments. Of course even at that time Montenegrins (actually Zećani) and Serbs are not the same people. You know people are different in history, tradition and culture, and the Montenegrins have nothing in common with that of the Serbs, except religion. Nations differ by country in which one lives, or by country created by the national elite, which usually with the ethnic population, has nothing to do.
Krađorđevići were really Petrovići when they moved out of the Montenegrin tribes Vasojevića, and how the last name of the Albanian tribe Klejmendi not know. Maybe they did not have a last name.June 29, 2015 at 6:34 am #428361
I didn’t say people from Zeta were necessarily Serbs, but they were part of medieval Serbian state, so Miroslav’s gospel is monument of Serbia. I know the Turks are to blame for this current state among south Slavic nations, many people originating from Montenegro still call themselves Serbs.June 29, 2015 at 10:12 pm #428365
Of course that Zeta was part of the medieval state of Nemanjić. Does she then called Serbia or something else we do not know. But if he did, would the feudal lords in their titulčama not cite a list of countries ruled? Feudal lords did not make ethnic state. Their countries were of feudal estates run by the feudal lords. No one is spinning attention to population, except as a source of income. Serbia, for instance, was half a millennium part Tusk Empire, were the Serbs became the Turks? Or Croatia, which is almost a millennium were under the Hungarians and Austrians, whether because Croats become Germans or Hungarians? Certainly that is the Gospel of Miroslav monument Serbia, located in Serbia. Certainly nobody, nobody can deny the right to opt for a political concept, or a nation. I understand that, but I do not understand that cancels the right of existence to an ethnic group. Montenegrins are a special people and are a separate nation. A special people, because they have their own history, traditions and culture, in which they differ from other peoples in the region. Since when are recover your country there are as a nation, because the nation is a political expression nation-building project of the national elite.June 30, 2015 at 1:05 am #428366
Serbians came to the balkan in the 6-7 century… hah, still with that german propaganda eh…..are you serious..??
